Woman of Heart and Mind

On Saturday I watched the documentary “Joni Mitchell: Woman of Heart and Mind”, originally aired as part of the PBS American Masters series. It is available for instant viewing on Netflix. I recommend it very highly. It was touching, sad, beautiful and inspiring. Joni Mitchell goes on that list of True Artists, in every sense of the word. I respect her a lot for her incredible body of work in music and on canvas. This mix is a melancholy cluster of songs loosely connected to one another, inspired by Joni.
